Armadillos Antics - Riya Kukreja (Class VIII)Armadillos resemble pocket dinosaurs they are the only armoured mammals and they belong to the same family as ant-catchers and sloths.Though they belong to the order edentata, which means without teeth, Armadillos have 14-18 primitive teeth, all molars, in each jaw. Thegiant Armadillos may have a total of 80-100 teeth! The Armadillos skin is covered withleathery plates which are connected by flexible bands of tissue sothat it can move its body easily. These bands are usually numberedin three, six or five. Armadillos are found mainly in South America,whereas they are equally at home in the pampas, arid rocky regions,marshes and dense forest. Only one species the nine bandedArmadillos is found in North America. They eat huge quantity of insects andplay a major role in pest control, though some people feel they domore damage by uprooting crops while digging for insects. Theyhave an enlarged claw for this purpose and use their long tonguesto slurp up their meal. South Americans and Mexican-Indianshave considered Armadillo meat a great delicacy for centuries.They use trained dogs to hunt the Armadillos down. The animal armour gives it no protection against dog bites but enables it escape intothick thorny bushes where neither humans nor dogs can follow. Only the three banded armadillos can roll itself up into a tight ball to evadepredators.Brighton International School, 12th KM Vidhan Sabha Marg, Vill.
